Art Meets Fashion
Long is the debate “Is fashion art?” But for SS14, the question has been answered, with a little help from the catwalks.
Getting even more creative than usual was Karl Lagerfeld, whose Chanel show saw designs bestowed in short, vivid brush strokes, with models’ eye makeup to match. Phoebe Philo also indulged her artistic flair with the spring/summer collection from Céline, which involved more paint-like daubs, but this time on a much larger scale; dresses and tops decorated in expressive strokes of green, red, yellow, blue and black.
Nodding to the arts but in a wholly different style, was Miuccia Prada, whose namesake label debuted women’s portraits on varying attire; the show venue even decorated by mural artists.
Art has not only met fashion this summer, but shacked up in some glorious creative hideout, à la Warhol’s Factory. To allude to the arts this season, try one of these top pieces…
